2013 Suzuki GSX-R750

Posted on by  

Since it was launched in 1985, the Suzuki GSX-R750 has managed to attract a lot of fans and there is no wonder why as is packed with modern technologies and features a pretty versatile and sporty character.

As far as performance is concerned, the 2013 Suzuki GSX-R750 is powered by the same 750 cc four cylinder engine as the previous year’s model. However, the actual model features an eight kilogram reduction off the total weight, advanced engine technology, broader power delivery, improved throttle response and lower emissions. On top of that you also get a more aerodynamic and light bodywork.

The stopping power is handled by a set of four-piston Brembo monoblock front brake calipers and 310mm dual floating discs, paired with a single piston rear brake caliper with a 220mm disc.

The motorcycle is offered with a starting price of $12,199 USD.

Press release

Suzuki GSX-R750

In 1985, Suzuki unleashed the GSX-R750 to the world, which would become the foundation for today’s sportbikes. With unmatched engineering feats in light weight frames and power, it made its race track debut with a stunning victory at The Le Mans 24-hour World Endurance Championships!

Suzuki has remained true to the GSX-R’s original concept with continued evolution the GSX-R750. The GSX-R750 remains the best choice for riders who appreciate a state-of-the-art 750cc engine combined with the compactness of a GSX-R600cc Supersport. When you ride a GSX-R750 you experience the breathtaking combination of outstanding race winning heritage, engine performance, crisp handling, compact size and light weight. It’s a winning combination that allows any rider to experience the exhilarating rush any time, any place, anywhere.

Experience a breathtaking combination of outstanding engine performance, nimble handling, compact size and light weight.
Experience the GSX-R750 – the latest version of The Original GSX-R, the best choice for riders who appreciate a state-of-the-art 750cc engine combined with the compactness of a 600cc Supersport.

The original and only 750cc sportsbike on the market, the GSX-R750 continues a legacy dating back to the model’s ground-breaking launch in 1985, where it took race replica motorcycles to a new level.

A truly individual street machine, the Suzuki GSX-R750 is a direct link between the racetrack and the streets and delivers powerful performance with supreme handling.

The current generation GSX-R750 features an eight kilogram reduction off the total weight, advanced engine technology, broader power delivery, improved throttle response and lower emissions and is built on a shorter, compact wheelbase with simplified and lighter aerodynamic bodywork.

The latest version of Suzuki’s Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection system delivers impressive throttle response along with improved fuel economy and reduced emissions.

The advanced Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) is designed to optimise engine output and now provides riders a selection of two engine maps to suit the conditions or their riding preference.

The GSX-R750 chassis, is designed with an emphasis on weight reduction and compactness to improve overall handling and provide an ideal power-to-weight ratio.

For greater stopping performance, Suzuki’s 750cc powerplant now incorporates four-piston Brembo monoblock front brake calipers and 310mm dual floating discs, and a single piston rear brake caliper with a 220mm disc.

2013 Suzuki GSX-R750 Features

750cm3 4-cylinder engine with a race-proven oversquare bore/stroke ratio for an efficient, high-revving design.

The engine employs forged pistons, shot-peened conrods, chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes.

Lightweight titanium-alloy valves controlled by single valve spring to reduce mechanical losses.

Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection, using fine-spray 8-hole injectors for improved fuel atomization, which contributes to more complete combustion.

Advanced, MotoGP-developed transistorized ignition control circuit helps maintain more precise spark timing across the range of engine temperature.

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of two racing-developed engine control maps to suit road conditions and personal tastes.

4-into-1 stainless-steel exhaust system with a titanium muffler, carrying a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve maximizing torque and improving throttle response, especially in the low-to-mid rpm range.

Race-proven back-torque-limiting clutch contributes to smoother downshifting and corner entry.

Lightweight and compact twin-spar aluminum cradle frame made of five cast sections and cast swingarm.

Race-developed, lightweight Showa Big Piston Front-forks (BPF) deliver superb feedback and consistent performance.

Single Showa rear shock features externally adjustable rebound and compression damping, along with adjustable ride height.

Electronically controlled steering damper provides lighter steering at slower speeds and more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds.

Front brakes with fully floating 310mm discs and radial-mount, four-piston Brembo monoblock calipers.

3-way adjustable footpegs, adjustable shift lever, and short fuel tank help compose a comfortable riding position.

Compact, lightweight instrument cluster with a built-in lap timer/stopwatch and programmable engine rpm indicators.

Small, simple and lightweight bodywork composing an exciting, aerodynamic styling.

Analog tachometer. LCD readouts include speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure indicator, S-DMS and gear position indicator.

Engine

Suzuki GSX-R750

The 750cc, four-cylinder engine with a race-proven oversquare bore/stroke ratio provides exceptionally potent, high-revving performance.

The engine utilizes forged pistons, shot-peened conrods, chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes for outstanding engine performance. Its lightweight titanium-alloy valves are controlled by single valve spring to reduce mechanical losses.

The engine is combined with Suzuki’s Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection system includes fine-spray 8-hole injectors, providing improved fuel atomization contributing to more complete combustion in the cylinder.

You also get an advanced, MotoGP-developed transistorized ignition control circuit helps maintain more precise ignition timing across the range of engine temperatures.

Moreover, the lightweight, durable forged pistons are designed with the Finite Element Method (FEM) and fatigue analysis technology and optimized camshaft profiles was developed using proven MotoGP racing technology.

A 4-into-1 stainless-steel exhaust system features a titanium muffler, which carries a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve. The system maximizes torque and improves throttle response, especially in the low-to-mid RPM range.

You’ll especially like the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of two racing-developed engine control maps to suit road conditions and personal preference.

The Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) plated cylinders are integrated into the upper crankcase to help reduce friction, improve heat transfer, increase durability and provide better ring seal.
